It’s a new day. a new SUNDAY. and it’s November. For whatever crazy reason I woke up this morning and somehow thought “maybe it’s somewhat chilly outside.” I even felt the window. HAHA. (It’s OK to laugh at me.) Nope. 90 degrees. But that’s OK. November is definitely one of my favorite months, and I am excited about the possibilities. Also, the end of my accounting tests happens in November. This will be a glorious day. A very glorious day.
-A “photo shoot” in DeLand with some kiddos& (more importantly) a chance to visit my godparents and their family. They live about 3 hours north so it’ll also be my dose of “cooler weather” for the month!
-Thanksgiving. Family. A paid holiday.
-New Thanksgiving placemats. I’ve just decided we are going to make new “I’m thankful for…” placemats. We still use the ones from when we were kids. This year they are going to be a bit more grown-up-ish. It’ll be a good challenge for Price. We’ll think out of the box.
-Brian is home & my grandparents are here–a great beginning to the month!
-Most of John’s family (Rachel–if you’re reading this, we’ll miss you!) will be at his house today. Perhaps it will be the mass meeting of families? haha.
…I could go on and on.
John 15:12: “I’ve told you these things for a purpose: that my joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature. This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you. This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends. You are my friends when you do the things I command you. I’m no longer calling you servants because servants don’t understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I’ve named you friends because I’ve let you in on everything I’ve heard from the Father.”
The peace of November in a nutshell:
I’m blessed. and Thankful.
With the abundant joy that is within me,
